Yokohama Tires Standard on Mitsubishi Lancer EVO

FULLERTON, Calif. (Jan. 2, 2008) – Yokohama tires are standard equipment on all trim levels of the all-new 2008 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution (EVO), introduced during the recent Greater Los Angeles Auto Show. The ultra-high-performance Yokohama A13C tires in size 245/40R18 carry a 93Y load and speed rating and ride on 18 x 8.5 inch Enkei cast aluminum or BBS forged aluminum alloy wheels, depending on the model level.

“We’re pleased that Mitsubishi has chosen Yokohama for this important new vehicle,” said Jeff Carpenter, director, OE sales and marketing for Yokohama. “The Lancer EVO is a performance icon. Our relationship with Mitsubishi has never been stronger.”

The EVO brings together Mitsubishi’s rally-inspired technology and engineering in a series that went on sale in Japan 16 years ago. In addition to the state-of-the-art tire technology used in the Yokohama tires, the EVO comes with a 291-hp 2-liter turbocharged and intercooled engine and an all-wheel-control dynamic handling system to regulate drive torque at each wheel.

Yokohama Tire Corporation is the North American manufacturing and marketing arm of Tokyo, Japan-based Yokohama Rubber Co., Ltd., a global producer and distributor of premium tires since 1917. Servicing a network of more than 4,500 points of sale in the U.S., Yokohama Tire Corporation offers a complete line of tires, including high-performance, light truck, passenger car, commercial truck and bus, as well as off-the-road mining and construction applications.
